My first thought is carving, but if your thinking about more standard types of projects, I kind of see Basswood in the same category as pine (at least regarding softness), not so much the grain. So I would say use it pretty much the same way. The nice thing is you could really make a nice furniture piece and accent it with various carvings.

By the way, 50 bucks for a truckload of Basswood, WOW I don’t think you would find a better deal, unless your mill it yourself.
